Custom Card: 1988-89 OPC Hockey Ramon Hernandez

Custom card of the new Rockies catcher, Ramon Hernandez. Ramon has been impressive handling the Rockies staff so far in camp and that is really the reason I see him getting more playing time than prospect Wilin Rosario early in the season. I might be wrong, but from what I can find Hernandez is the active leader for home runs by a catcher unless Ivan Rodriguez signs somewhere.

The design is from the 1988-89 OPC/Topps hockey set featuring rookie cards of Brett Hull, Bob Probert and Brendan Shanahan. The best know card from this year is probably the Wayne Gretzky Topps card showing him holding a L.A. Kings sweater at a press conference after being traded from Edmonton, O-Pee-Chee went with a less iconic standard hockey pose in the Kings gear.
